Another sensational play from Michael Frayn, CLOUDS is a sexy and philosophical comedy about adventure, liberation, and human attraction. When Owen, world-weary journalist, and Mara, serious lady novelist, first meet in 1970s post-revolutionary Cuba they discover they have both been commissioned to write the same article by competing newspapers. Travelling the island with an outgoing American journalist, a mysterious local chauffeur and a sensitive tour guide, they find their rivalry turning to desire as they discover uncharted territory within themselves and each other.
